/userinfo endpoint

This page summarizes the protocol options availalbe for on the /userinfo endpoint for ID-porten OIDC Provider


The /userinfo endpoint is thoroughly documented in OIDC Core specification, chapter 5.3

Note that ID-porten does not contain any useful additional information about the user beyond the pid (national id number) which is already included in the id_token.


All clients can request the profile scope and will get an access_token that can be used to call the userinfo-endpoint. The location of the endpoint is publised in the metadata as the claim userinfo_endpoint.

The following header parameters apply:

Parameter Calue
Http method: GET
Authorization: Bearer < access_token >


The response is a JSON structure with claims:
